Luke Bryan sure is a man of commitment.
Even though the country singer was “very sick” Saturday night, he managed to pull off an upbeat, cheery performance at Resorts World Las Vegas, Nevada.
The American Idol judge showed up on time and in his usual concert attire with his hat pulled back because he was being honest with the crowd.
DailyMail.com learned: “I almost got canceled tonight and this isn’t an April Fool’s joke.” But I didn’t want to do that, I wanted to be with you all tonight, and here I am. It might be rough, but we’ll get through it and have a good time.
He then asked fans to be patient with the quality of his voice as he joked, “Don’t say I’m not Adele.”
Brian, 46, explained that he stayed up late the night before while gambling with his nephew, hinting that he lost a small fortune on the casino floor.
He took it off! Luke Bryan sure is a man of commitment. Even though the country singer was “very sick” Saturday night, he managed to put on an amazing performance at Resorts World Las Vegas in Nevada.
Tough guy: “I almost got canceled tonight,” he told the audience, DailyMail.com has learned. “But I didn’t want to do that, I wanted to be with you all tonight, and here I am”; Here he had a cocktail in his hand
The audience didn’t seem to care one bit when they cheered him on.
The show kicked off on time with Luke starting with a string of his best hits like Huntin’, Fishin’, Lovin’ Every Day, Rain Is A Good Thing, Knockin’ Boots, Crash My Party, and One Margarita.
He then took a break to speak to the audience and explained with a laugh that he felt like he was “going to die” but was going to get over it with his “straight tequila” that he drank from a single red glass.

The audience didn’t seem to care at all about Luke’s illness, and one audience member even took his drink to enjoy after he served it to her.
“This is straight tequila!” Woman warned. “Your date will be lucky tonight but you might not remember a thing,” he added, looking worried before telling her to “be careful.”
Bryan then said he would perform in full on Saturday because he was on his way for the next two weeks and had plenty of time to “recover”.
He also took the time to bring in another celebrity.
“People say I’m at odds with Blake Shelton,” he laughs, adding that he’s not sure.
The fun guy: Brian, 46, explained that he may have stayed up too late the night before gambling with his nephew. He then asked fans to be patient with the quality of his voice as he jokingly said, “Don’t say I’m not Adele.”
But later in the ceremony when he intentionally booed the room, he quipped, “Now I know what it feels like to be Blake Shelton.”
The feud is really fake because the two have been good friends for decades.
But they’ve been on rival shows: Like Luke on American Idol, Blake has been on The Voice for many years.
Luke has also been praised for being the star of Lionel Richie on American Idol.
He told the audience: “I already know Lionel Richie, it’s unbelievable, I’m lucky.”
“When I call him he answers the first ring!” He added, expressing his pride in the friendship.
